What’s Going To Happen
Can Rice get into the College Football Playoff on a four-best team theory?
Who’s hotter over the last two games?
The Owls were able to bust through a nine-game losing streak with wins over Middle Tennessee and North Texas to finally start look like things might just be turning around under Mike Bloomgren.
So why is this happening? The passing game is getting a bit better with back-to-back 200-yard games the first time all season.
Meanwhile, UTEP is playing hard, things are working okay at times, and then … it’s another loss.
The problem is a defense that can’t come up with a third down stop. The secondary isn’t doing much of anything, and now it has to deal with Air Owl.
Rice won’t do anything to rip the doors off of a Miner team overdue for a whole lot of luck at home, but it’ll make it three straight wins for the first time since the middle of the 2014 season.
The Owls will have a bit more offense in the second half, especially on third downs through the air.
